Ready to Wake Up and Start Living Fully?

Tired of Feeling Numb and Disconnected?

If you’re ready to come back to life, I have a wonderful ecourse to share with you that will help guide you back to your soul and help you reconnect with how it feels to be truly alive!

My dear friend Jodi Chapman, author of the inspiring blog Soul Speak and the Soulful Journals series is launching “The Coming Back to Life Ecourse” and I am very excited about this. She is amazing and I love her blog. She radiates warmth and love through her writing. I used to maintain a sporadic gratitude journal, but after I met Jodi, I’ve made it a habit and my life is brighter because of it.
Jodi’s “Coming Back to Life Ecourse” is a 6-week journey that begins on October 1. It is a helping hand, a set of tools, and a community all wrapped up into one loving course to support you when you are feeling numb and unsure of which way to go.  

This course is for you if you are ready to:

♥ live fully and love fully.
♥ take responsibility for your life.
♥ push past your fears & reach your dreams.
♥ forgive, let go, and move forward.
♥ see the world with childlike wonder.
♥ reconnect with your soul.
♥ believe in miracles again.
♥ open up to this amazing universe.
♥ join a community of loving souls.
♥ be completely authentic and vulnerable (in a good way).
♥ join a course that comes from the heart and soul.
♥ come back to life.

Let us hear, in Jodi’s own words, what this course is all about and how she was inspired!

Welcome, dearest Jodi! A huge warm hug to you!  

For our readers who are meeting you for the first time, please tell us more about yourself!
If you’re just meeting me for the first time, I would love to start by saying hello. I’m grateful that our paths have crossed, and I look forward to getting to know you better!
I am an inspirational writer. (I still pinch myself when I write that because it’s such a dream come true.) I am definitely evidence that our lives can change drastically once we make our minds up and begin to leap toward our dreams. (More about that in a bit.) For now, I’ll say that I write the blog Soul Speak, and I am so grateful for the loving community there. I also co-wrote (with my amazing husband, Dan Teck) the bestselling Soulful Journals series – 11 writing-prompt books that make getting to know yourself fun. I am the author of the upcoming book, Coming Back to Life: How An Unlikely Friend Helped Me Reclaim My True Spirit, which is what my new ecourse is based on.

Wow! Jodi – I am definitely looking forward to your book. I love your Soulful Journal Series! So exactly how were you inspired to create the Coming Back to Life Ecourse?

I was given a helping hand when I needed it so desperately, and this course is my way of offering my own hand to anyone else who is stuck and needing to wake up to their own life.
Just two years ago, I was in a very different place. I definitely wasn’t awake. I was feeling lost and numb and completely disconnected from my soul and from all of life – living my life on auto-pilot. I was alive in the sense that my body was functioning – my heart was beating, and I was getting up each day and going to work, but I wasn’t REALLY living. I was just going through the motions – sleepwalking through life – and I wasn’t even aware of it.
And it’s not like this numbing out happened overnight – it happened gradually over a period of many years. Throughout my life, when something or someone hurt me, it felt like a little part of me left. I’ve always been a sensitive soul, and sometimes it was just easier to retreat rather than feel the pain. I also have lived most of my life feeling afraid and stepping back rather than leaping when I was called to take a chance. So all of these pains and fears and struggles piled up on top of each other – creating a dark cloud over my heart. It was just easier to go to sleep and not think about it or feel any of it.
Two years ago, all of the struggles in my life came to a head – my husband and I had to move under very stressful and surprising circumstances, we were having a hard time staying passionate about our struggling gift business, we were drowning in bills with no light that we could see at the end of the tunnel, and we had just lost two people who meant a lot to us.  So we were grieving and trying to put our life back together at the same time. All I wanted to do was crawl into my bed, pull the covers up, and wake up when everything was better again. I felt lost.
That’s when the helping hand came. My loved one who had just died began communicating with me from the other side. He was my childhood sweetheart, and we hadn’t spoken in almost 20 years. I was definitely not open to this sort of thing at all, so it took an entire year of him sending me signs and me asking for more signs and on and on before we finally could get to work. And once we did, my entire world opened up. He helped me see that being here on Earth is such a beautiful gift – a gift that we have chosen to be a part of. He helped me see that I wasn’t really living. And he helped me wake up and step back into my life again.
Our journey together has been life-changing for me. Everything changed – all because I now saw things through a different lens. I now know that my time here is precious, and I can choose to come back to life. We all can.
That’s why I created this course. I was given this beautiful gift, and I didn’t want to keep it all to myself. I want to be the helping hand for anyone who wanted to start living again and wasn’t sure how to do it.
That’s an intriguing story, Jodi. I often receive signs from my Mom who passed on two years ago – and I was confused when I experienced it the first time. Please tell us about the Coming Back to Life Ecourse? Who is it for?

I would be happy to!
The Coming Back to Life Ecourse begins on 10/1 and lasts for 6 weeks. It’s a helping hand, a set of concrete tools, and a loving support system all wrapped up into one heartfelt course!
This course is for those of us who are ready to plug back into this magical universe, reconnect with our soul, and open our hearts again. It’s for those of us who are no longer willing to just “get by” and sleepwalk through our days. It’s for those of us who are ready – truly ready – to start living fully.

You’ve always had wings. You just have to decide to fly 

Do you have a special message for our readers, Jodi? 
We have all felt disconnected from our soul and the universe throughout our lives. This is completely normal. And when we feel this way, it can be hard to know how to plug back in. When I was feeling numb, I had a friend help guide me back. That’s why I created this course – to be that helping hand for you. To offer concrete tools and a loving community to support you in your journey back home.
I would be thrilled if you joined us. Isn’t it time you woke up and embraced your life again? Isn’t it time we all did? This amazing ecourse begins on 10/1 – I hope you’ll choose to come back to life! 
We all have a light inside of us that shines so brightly, and this beautiful ecourse will help you remove some of the veils that have been covering your light. Isn’t it time you allowed yourself to shine? To live fully? To feel completely alive? Isn’t it time for each of us to allow ourselves to have that?

By the way, I would love to talk more with you sometime about the signs that you received from your mom. I’m glad she’s letting you know that she’s still with you, but I know how it can be hard to process when it first starts happening. Love to you!

🙂 I look forward to that, Jodi – it is something I enjoy now after the initial confusion was over. I just decided to stop thinking and just experience the joy of connection. Love, Vidya

Your story is amazing…certain things happened after I lost my mom way back in 1984.
Until now I had avoided thinking about it but after reading this post of yours a window has opened. Hoping the view would be wonderful.,.
